China and Indonesia will strengthen cooperation in vaccine and genomic research, development and production, according to a joint press statement released by China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday.

China and Indonesia vow to boost cooperation in vaccine development

China vows to support Indonesia in its effort to set up a regional vaccine hub. The two countries have signed a slew of documents on cooperation in areas including research and development in vaccine and genomics, green development and cyber security construction during Indonesian President Joko Widodo’s visit in China.

In a high-level meeting in early July, regarding anti-COVID-19 cooperation with Indonesia, China said it is ready to help Indonesia increase its vaccine production capacity and advance the construction of a joint research center for vaccines and genes. As of last December, China donated a total of 4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines, 120 ventilators and 400 oxygen generators to Indonesia as China continues to help Indonesia fight against COVID-19.
